The Texas Mall Shooting: Everything to Know
On May 6, 2023, eight persons were shot and killed, including LaCour. Authorities claimed that a police officer who was in the all for a different case shot the shooter.
He died on the same day after being shot by a police officer. The Texas Department of Public Safety has identified the suspect as 33-year-old Mauricio Garcia, a resident of Dallas.
The identified victim, Christian LaCour, was a Farmersville resident. He was working with Mauricio Garcia, the suspected shooter, at the Allen Premium Outlets in the Texas Mall.
Garcia, who had taken the lives of eight, started firing in the parking lot. The mall is situated approximately 25 minutes north of Dallas in Allen.
A shocking video from the mall’s parking lot shows a man exiting in a grey car while wearing tactical gear and arming himself with an AR-15-style weapon.
Six of the victims who died outside the mall were found dead immediately at the scene.
Allen Fire Chief Jonathan Boyd stated that there were nine additional victims who were hospitalized, and two of them eventually passed away from their injuries.
After Garcia was discovered with a patch on his chest that appeared to have white supremacist or neo-Nazi leanings, authorities started looking into whether he had extreme ideas that may have contributed to the horrific shooting.
According to reports, RWDS, which stands for ‘Right Wing Death Squad’ was written on the patch.
The officials stated that the federal authorities are looking into social media profiles they believe Garcia used and that displayed a desire for white nationalist and neo-Nazi viewpoints.
